Gourmet TakeAways & Home Delivery
at the Dolder Grand
The Dolder Grand Take Drive Through
Zurich’s Dolder Grand has come up with an innovative new idea to address the current situation in regard to the Corona Situation. Since all its restaurants and bars have had to close, it has instead opened its own “Drive Through Restaurant”. From now on you can order delicious gourmet food prepared by the Dolder kitchen and pick it up from the Dolder take-away window, right next to the main entrance.
The Take Away window is open daily from 11am to 6pm. Alternatively, you can have the dishes delivered to your home by the Dolder team. So whether you fancy a gourmet lunch or a delicious dinner or some of the delectable sweet creations by star patissier Christian Hümbs for Afternoon Tea, you’re sure of a wonderful meal. It’s the prefect solution to lift your spirits in these uncertain times.
Dolder Hotel Classic
We tried the “Dolder Hotel Classic” set menu which includes a “Bündner Teller” of cold meats, Caesar salad with chicken, Beef tatare and a selection of cheese with condiments and bread. It was all presented in the smart black Dolder carrier bags in takeaway boxes and we drove it home and plated it up. My “plating” is obviously not up to the standard you would expect at the Dolder of course, and I must point out that the steak tartare was perfectly cylindrical when we took possession of it – but I blame its slightly wonky shape on my husband’s driving! 😉 The important thing was that it all tasted delicious!
Bündner Teller and Cheese
The Chicken Caesar Salad
The portions are generous and we shared one portion (which costs CHF 79.00 per person) between the two of us as we were also sampling some of the delicious pastries afterwards.
Patisserie by Star Patissier Christian Hümbs
Top Dolder Grand top pastry chef, Christian Hümbs, has won “Patissier of the Year” several times, and is known to many as a jury member on the SAT1 television Baking program.
We were lucky enough to meet him at the Dolder Grand and to view the sweet trolley displaying all his amazing pastries.
The Sweet Treats
Christian’s desserts were not only beautiful works of art but they also tasted delicious too!
They were all wonderful but my absolute favourite was the raspberry “hedgehog”- it’s a fabulous mix of raspberries sitting atop raspberry cream with chocolate, on a crispy base. Divine!
Middle Eastern Delicacies Coming Soon
In addition, from 1st April, the Dolder will also be serving the Middle Eastern delicacies created by Top Chef, Firas El-Borji. He will be creating authentic Lebanese dishes such as Fattoush, Tabbouleh, Mezze, Shish Taouk and Mashboos. The set menu will cost CHF 59.00 per person.
Heiko Nieder’s Chocolates
If you fancy chocolates, then Michelin starred chef Heiko Nieder, has created a special selection of his homemade chocolates available in sets of 5, 10 or 15 pieces. They cost CHF 14.50 (set of 5), CHF 28.00 (set of 10) and CHF 40.00 (set of 15)
